My Take on The Game Awards 2020
Well, The Game Awards 2020 was held without a live audience this year. Instead, it was hosted virtually by its creator Geoff Keighley on December 10th. Well, that was expected. Do you know what else was expected? The Last of Us Part 2 won 7 awards, including the Game of The Year.
Actually, I’m more of a Ghost of Tsushima fan. Nevertheless, both GoT and TLoU is a great game. Anyway, GoT won Best Art Direction, which was very well deserved. Then, we got Final Fantasy VII Remake winning the best music, no wonder since SE still got the gods, Masashi Hamauzu and Nobuo Uematsu. FFVII Remake also won the Best RPG.
Hades snatched 2 awards on the Game Awards 2020, Best Indie Game and Best Action. Hades gave us something that Blizzard failed to give (hmm, next Diablo). Among Us got 2 awards, too. I mean, Among Us really brings us together, right? Definitely better than some gacha games and another competitive game.
Half-Life: Alyx won Best VR/AR, and MS Flight Simulator won Best Sim/Strategy Game, no competition there. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater won the Best Sports/Racing Game because it was definitely much better than FIFA and NBA 2K. Dirt 5 was good, though. Then, I gotta show some love for Fall Guys, Animal Crossing, and Phasmophobia. Those are great fun to play.
For esports, the awards are mostly won by League of Legends. Yeah, I think it was deserved seeing how hard Riot worked in 2020, LoL. But, seriously, they did some great job, especially for Worlds 2020. For the esports coach, we got Zonic from Astralis. He was a beast when he was still a player, and now he is arguably the best coach in CS:GO.
